Join the New York Nineteenth Century Society Parlorcraft Circle as we explore a myriad of Yuletide Christmas crafts with snowflake themes. We will cover the trifecta of nearly six years of running the Parlorcraft Circle: needlework, papercraft, and yarnwork. You may choose to embroider a handkerchief (or anything you like) with snowflakes or holly, make a three-dimensional paper snowflake or star tree-topper, or crochet a general-purpose snowflake to use as a gift tag or ornament.

In addition to our amazing snowflake tutorials, it’s also time for our annual NYNCS Cookie Swap and Yuletide Social! Non-crafters are welcome to attend this event. Please bring one dozen homemade cookies if you would like to participate in the swap. No cookies, no problem! Stop by to say hello and enjoy seasonal treats, hot chocolate, spiced cider, and/or other suprise comestibles!

No need to RSVP; just bring yourselves and if you wish, one dozen cookies! Please leave your laptops and modern sewing/craft projects at home for this event – we’re all about the historic hand work!

Moderated by Rachel Klingberg and Morgana Toglia, we heartily invite you to craft and design to your hearts content!

If you have a special craft or skill from history that you would like to share, please let us know: letters@nyncs.org
